Yes, you’re probably a big user of the Verona Public Library. But we’re betting that you also have a lot of books in your permanent collection and might relish the opportunity to trade them for something new.

Here’s your chance: Essex County is going to be holding its first ever Book Swap. If you drop off books to sell, you’ll get a voucher to exchange for new books. And even if you don’t have books to swap you’ll be supporting a good cause if you shop the swap. All proceeds from books that are sold will be used for new programs and projects at the Essex County Environmental Center.

If you have books to donate that are in good condition, bring them to the Environmental Center in Roseland on Saturday, May 1, between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The day to shop is Saturday, May 15, also from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The Essex County Environmental Center is located at 621B Eagle Rock Avenue in Roseland, across from the driving range and miniature golf course.

The Book Swap is co-sponsored by Smart Little House, a sustainable building company in Roseland.  For more information, call the Environmental Center at 973-228-8776.
